The good tank should carry you until you replace the rear pump, don't wait, the good tank might go next.

1991 ford f150 fuel problem


Is it possible the fuel hoses are not hooked up right ? If you only changed the rear pump and the lines are correct, its possible the new pump damaged the check valve in the front pump. The valve could have been about to fail before replacing the rear pump.
You may be able to block the line going into the front tank and run the truck from just the rear tank.

Just purchased a 97 chev 3500 series pu with dual fuel tanks. Don't know how to switch from front to rear tank. there is no switch


There is no switch. What you have is a "transfer pump" that moves fuel from the rear tank to the front tank as required, so that you get a smooth declining indication of fuel left on the gauge in the dash.

If the transfer pump goes bad, any fuel in the rear tank will not be pumped to the front tank so you'll only be running on the front tank.

The fuel level indicator is on the front tank, so the gauge will still accurately register the amount of fuel in the front tank.

I have a 94 f 150 the rear tank works but no fuel to the engine when you switch to the front would this be the tank selector and is it in front of side tank


Each tank has its own fuel pump. Usually its the pump that goes out. You might also notice that fuel is tranfering its self to the non-working tank which means part of the fuel return valve is going out too. Another very good reason to replace the whole fuel pump assembly and not just the pump. I mean when you go thru the effort of dropping the tank to replace the pump, might as well put all new components in so you only do it once. On my 95 F150 the side tank was the front one and the rear was centered further back

Can't use front tank. i fill the rear tank, front tank eventually fills up. switch to front tank, it'll run for about 5 minutes then stall. then i switch to rear...fine. why is the front tank filling up...


Ok sounds like a electrical problem being an 89 its fuel injected eather 5.0 or 5.8 each tank has its own fuel pump and sending unit a dashboard switch, relay, fuse and switching motor. check your fuel line from the front tank it could be clogged. check for 12v pwr. to the front pump the sending unit will require 4V but not much. as soon as the fuel rail pressureizes the ECM shuts the pump off using the relay. Usually the tank switch goes bad first.

My 1989 f250 has dual tanks, it only wants to pull gas from the rear tank and the return fuel fills the front tank. we have replaced the dash switch and the pump twice. it seems to work for a short time...


Make sure you have the check valves in place on the lines at the sending units on the tanks. If the switching valve on the frame rail goes bad it can push fuel back up the return to the opposite tank than you are pulling from causing fuel to push up and out the inlet. If these were not removed and replaced on the new sending units they will have to be purchased from the dealer.

I have a 2000 Chevy 3500 box truck with 2 gas tanks. The gas guage only goes to 1/2 with both tanks full and it won't pump gas from the second tank. How do I fix this.


Fuel levels are equaled in the tanks via a frame mounted transfer pump that transfers fuel from the rear tank to the front tank where the main pump is. Your transfer pump needs replaced, and should run about 60 bucks. Should find the pump mounted to the frame between tanks.

88 Ford F250 rear gas tank will not work


Sounds like the rear fuel pump in the tank is not working and the float or sender is bad also. check to see if the rear pump is working should make a humming noise.

Ford Dual Gas Tank problem, Rear tank Always full.


This is a common problem. On the driver's side frame rail is a large black plastic assembly that the fuel lines connect to. This a fuel switching valve what usually happens is the valve goes bad and the fuel gets pumped from one tank to the other
